educational programs and pell grants. they can cut those without consequences. more and more with the younger generation, they're digital. we need online registration. >> well said, by the way, in the state of california, many state legislators were saying that the reason they cut higher education for the uc system first is they figured there was the least amount of political consequence for them in doing so because young people don't vote. the case that we're making to people is not just vote because of the historical importance or because of the necessity as american citizens, but money equates to vote because they allocate money and resources on the basis of how groups turn out and that's critical. >> if they think they can cut you without consequence, they will. >> they will. >> part of the sin nichl here, too, is the youth vote was a critical vote in the 2008 elections. to this point of who is most impacted, both the people who have been getting much, much more engaged in our electoral process. these are first -- many times they're first-time voters. and what we're doing is essentially s
question. the simplest answer has to do with education. if you adjusted those rates for the various education levels within each of those groups, they'd be a lot closer. for example, if you look at the unemployment rate for high school graduates, it's probably around 8% or 9%. college graduates, around 4%. one explanation. and, look, there's still discrimination in our job market against minorities, that's another explanation. >> okay. look, it's not just jack welch, whom we heard from, perpetuating this conspiracy theory. look at these interviews. congressman alan west, senator john mccain both on cnbc. here we go. >> i know. >> you are alleging specifically that the president is engaging in a cover-up of the data. you are saying that the administration is actively manipulating that data. correct? >> well, absolutely. >> frankly, i am not enough of an economist to question exactly what those numbers are. our discussion about the warren act that just took place where there are blatant violations of the law, i wouldn't put anything past this administration. >> you know, these are sit

the economic data and even in today's number, college educated workers, you know, you're talking about what we consider full employment, 4% unemployment rate. if you look at those demographics or state by state, unemployment trends have been doing this for a while. this is not a surprise. >> the timing is good for the president. >> absolutely. >> state by state numbers two weeks which is going to be make or break times in terms of the election. >> lot of key states like in ohio have been better for a while. the next jobs report is the friday before the election. >> all those days of the week. >> so dnds and that will be a bill report. usually the white house says let's not pay too much attention to, you know, one month statistics there's lots of noise. look at this. >> david plouffe was on msnbc saying today is not a day for politics. >> exactly. >> amman, bring you back in here. amman, i'm sure you're dusting off your -- the latest copy of your saul alinsky theology you're hiding behind your back. i do want to if i can take a moment to be a good morningy gust, this is the job of any president

, mike barnicle, the life expectancy has extended because of health care, girls are getting educated. but when you look at that piece, you realize there's no way in, no way to stay in and not a good way of getting out, either. >> this is a very depressing story. on october 7th, united states begins its 12th year of war in afghanistan. 12 years. for those of you at home this morning getting the kids ready for school or getting ready for your workday, think of the war in afghanistan this way. if a 20-year-old marine is killed by the afghans, our supposed allies, that marine was 8 years of age when this war began. his first year in little league and dies in afghanistan, a country that we are not going to change. a country that is not our country. a country that we ought to leave right away. >> yeah. it's a big problem. i was very supportive of both president bush and president obama in afghanistan, mainly because of the hope we can turn around what happens to women. we have the same problem we had in vietnam. when you're working with a corrupt government, people can't work to save thems
to cut education funding and grants for people on going to college i'm continuing on growing. is it so critical it's worth paying to china? i apologize, mr. president. i use that term with all respect. okay, good. so i'll get rid of that. >> i don't know what he was doing out there. he had his head down. he was enduring the debate rather than fighting it. romney, on the other hand, came in with a campaign. he had a plan. he was going to dominate the time. he was going to be aggressive. he's going to push the moderator around, which he did effectively. he was going to relish the evening enjoying it. the latest thing we got from romney because he said so is you know what i want to do with people when they're poor? shove them into the emergency room. why didn't obama say that? you talk about social security and medicare people, they're part of your 47%. you want to drop them from the list of eligible americans. you don't have any care for these people. what are you talking about? we've got it on tape, governor. we've got it on tape what you think of these people. don't come out here and p
just do not see the engines in other places. but i think technology combined with a great education system and government and business really working together and i thinks this is what we're missing around the world, a model leak as what occurred in the uk or canada or russia might be something we can learn from, but i believe it's the u.s. leads us out. >> wait. follow up on that. you say government business cooperation is what we need. the kind we have in the united kingdom, in canada, and even russia, you find it easier to deal with putin's russia than the united states? >> you are a pro at this and so no matter which way i answer this, i'm in trouble. to that point, each of those leaders understand technology. each of those leaders know if you're an extraction leader live russia, you've got to create stabili stability, keep your young people at home. >> so how badly did we do in the u.s.? when you can contrast your dealings in washington with your dealings in lawn and canada and russia, what's your conclusion? >> i think we have a country that dreams well. i think we've got to b
work if you don't have regulation. i don't have any plan to cut education funding and grants that go to people going to college. as president i will sit down on day one -- actually, the day after i get elected, i'll sit down with leaders, the democratic leaders as well as republican leaders and continue -- as we did in my state, we met every monday for a couple hours. talked about the issues and the challenges in our state in that case. we have to work on a collaborative basis. not because we're going to compromise our principle, but because there's common ground. >> so that doesn't sound as severely conservative as he did during the primaries. >> no. >> and of course it gives the obama campaign the opportunity to remind people about mitt romney as the governor of massachusetts and say, okay, this guy is a flip-flopper. so they started out by calling mitt romney an extremist, now he's a flip-flopper. >> he certainly didn't sound severely conservative at that debate. here's the question. why aren't those who are really severely conservative going through the roof right now? >> good qu

"the new york times" editorial today, they got out overnight, says the following, virtually every time mr. romney spoke, he misrepresented the platform on which he and paul ryan are actually running. that's quite a statement. and a new york magazine jonathan challenged romney over his economic plan that seems to rely on some magical numbers and thinking, quote, so romney is a candidate of a 20% cut in tax rates, a new plan to cover people with pre-existing conditions and higher defense spending and he will accomplish it all by eliminating federal funding for pbs. the question is can obama and his
in denver. mr. romney struck centrist sounding positions on government regulation, education and most notably, health care. >> if obama care is repealed, how would you replace it? >> actually, it's a lengthy description but number one, pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. >> pre-existing conditions are covered under my plan. keeping them honest, that assurance is misleading and a short time later, a top campaign adviser had to clarify what his boss actually meant. under mr. romney's plan, he said, pre-existing conditions would only be covered for people who already have insurance to begin with, but are changing jobs and therefore, health insurance plans. that's not who most people think of when it comes to pre-existing conditions. ironically, the health care reform law mitt romney signed as governor and remains in effect today in massachusetts does mandate coverage for anyone with pre-existing conditions, whether they already have health insurance or not. a bit later in the program, we will talk about one of the few moments that mr. romney failed to strike a tone of mode
